This week's book excerpt comes from one of our most popular titles, What Every Christian Needs to Know about Social Justice by Jeffrey Johnson, and is an important and timely message for the church.
THE EVOLUTION OF SOCIAL JUSTICE
If the house of social justice is built on the foundation of classical Marxism, then the framing is constructed from critical theory. If we look below the surfaces of the “sexual revolution,” the feminist and gay rights’ movements, and the Black Lives Matter organization, we will discover the common infrastructure of critical theory.
The book you hold brings together the thoughts of two men with very different backgrounds. One was Italian; the other, English. One lived in the sixteenth century; the other in the eighteenth century. One is best known today for his profound theology and the other for his hymns of praise to God. But both had this in common: they loved the glory of God’s sovereign grace in Christ.
Let me introduce you to these two men and their book.
